Why not enhance your visit with a dish from Chuku’s?
Chuku’s is the world’s first Nigerian tapas restaurant bringing a taste of Lagos in the heart of London. Founded by brother-sister duo, Emeka and Ifeyinwa Frederick, they have been popping up across London for the last 3 years and are now crowdfunding for a permanent home. The sibling duo typically serve up their authentic Nigerian flavours as sharing plates, but this summer they’ll be popping up at The Roundhouse with their tasty Eko Burritos. Think burritos but Naija-style!
…throughout their childhood, big brother Emeka (é-meh-ka) and little sister Ifeyinwa (i-fay-in-wa) noticed the lack of Nigerian cuisine on the capital’s “foodie” map. Keen to share their heritage with schoolfriends as they got older, they patiently waited for that spot which would celebrate the flavours of their motherland and pay homage to the stories told by their grandmother. Having waited in vain, as they entered their twenties, they decided they would have to embark on their own mission – to share what they know and love about Nigerian cuisine and culture, making it accessible to people from all different backgrounds in the UK. And it with a twist!
Named as one of the 20 most exciting young entrepreneurs to watch in 2019 by the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, they have been recommended by Time Out and featured in VICE Munchies, Forbes and the Telegraph – as finalists in the Black British Business Awards.
